There is a place where nature reveals itself, as if inviting us to forget about everything, where we can come closer to ourselves and nature. As a nature and eco luxury lover I was willing to come back to visit our friends of Hotel Villas Flamingos, indeed a unique place in the world to enjoy this two concepts in harmony. Villas Flamingos is located at a privileged place in the Yum-Balam nature reserve on the idyllical and paradisiacal island of Holbox, Mexican Caribbean.

After a warm welcome by Jose Manuel Delgado, general manager at this priviledged hotel, we were admiring the breathtaking sustainable
hand-knitted bamboo lobby, guided by the design and vision of the renowned Mexican architect Alejandro D’Acosta.
